Pasta With Eggs And Cheese



  1. Bring a stockpot of water to a boil and salt it.
  2. Heat the oven to 200 F and put a large ovenproof bowl in it for 5 minutes.
  3. When the bowl is warm - handle it with oven mitts to avoid burning yourself - crack the eggs on a flat surface and open them into it.
  4. Beat or whisk until uniformly colored.
  5. Stir in the cheese.
  6. When the water boils, cook the pasta until it is tender but not mushy; start tasting after 5 minutes.
  7. When it's done, scoop out and reserve at least 1 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta.
  8. Immediately toss the pasta with the eggs in the bowl; if it's too dry, add the pasta-cooking water.
  9. Taste and add more salt or cheese, then add black pepper - I suggest a lot - and serve.
